't had a valentine's day budget in four years." from harry reid. and from vice president biden, "today's three letter word -- l-o-v-e." we now know the recession and the euro zone is getting worse, not better. that cannot be good news for the u.s., actually. senior foreign affairs correspondent greg palkot has the story from london. >> the latest figure shows euro zone falling deeper in recession. >> europe is spluttering, stuttering and having a terrible time. >> effectively a double dip recession. some of the hardest hit country were debt-plagued spain and italy. france was sluggish. growth in germany down .6%. slow growth in economic powerhouse germany is especially worrying. the weakness is hurting the german exports. adding to economic headache, strike of security workers for higher pay snarled airports in germany today. >> he said is up it. even if i suffer for it. further come pounding problems debt-ridden countries are saddled with high unemployment. the jobless rate in greece is record 27%. i come here all the time. there are no jobs. economists say there could be some pick nu
to get the congress to introduce legislation, you know harry reid will do whatever he wants in the senate and he ought to do that. but the reason he's saying this actually, it's certainly a stop to the left and thanking them for the vote in the election and doesn't realize an important thing, 62 million people voted against him and because they're concerned about this and he himself did very little. a lot of news reports that he thinks his greatest failing in his first term is a lack of action on climate change and he spoke little about it on the campaign trail because he knows the way americans feel about that. they're not for 2 billion more dollars to go to green energy projects, new committee called the energy security trust. we already have great green initiatives in the private sector and things are working. if you tell the public, give them the action between hugging a tree and hugging a wallet, the wallet always wins and be careful. >> and we're aware that the president got more votes than the people who voted against the president. this is a situation where the climate change issu
, and the reason why it was 58 votes is because harry reid switched his vote to no soap the senate can bring it back up again. you have a lot of republican senators who were saying last week that they did not want to see it go up in filibuster. at least it would be an up-down of the to be approved. there was no precedent to filibuster a choice like this. and the republicans decided they wanted to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on issues like the terrorist attack in benghazi in september, and so they are committed to passing a goal when they come back. the way you are looking at it, it is a tedious exercise in delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed. he will just have to wait 11 days. you should confirm him because you are going to confirm him anyway. it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to do. host: harry reid set a new vote for tuesday, in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: they say they would like answers again from the white house, more details about what the president did and did not do
-in-chief. but democrats suggest that they're doing the country a disservice, near is harry reid. >> and press center unwarranted to stop or attempt to try to stop the secretary of defense and the cia director. we need the men and women need the secretary of defense, chuck hagel's imminently qualified to be that secretary of defense. >> and jack reed of rhode island and the senate armed services committee postponed a vote on hagel until this week and it could come up as early as this coming week, harris. >> anybody who thought this issue was going away, woefully underestimated it. steve centanni, part of the opposition of john brennan to head the cia is his role in creating a controversial drone program. it targets the suspected terrorists including those who and reveals that americans overseas can be targeted for killing without any kind of court order. officials simply have to determine that that person is a terror leader and a serious threat to the united states, and then it would be too dangerous to try to capture that person. tonight, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle speaking out about the i

to cut back on the number used. after harry reid said the republicans were filibustering hagel, he called for a vote yesterday. cloture, filibuster, what is it? >> cloture is a maneuver to limit debate to essentially end a filibuster. >> to get to the vote already? >> to get to the vote. a filibuster is where you're delaying and you keep talking or keep having procedural delays to keep something from passing or from being -- someone from being confirmed. i'll say this, is one of the conundrums the republicans have been having is that sometimes senator reid will actually file a motion for cloture to limit debate when there hasn't actually been a filibuster present. >> some are crying foul on that. back to the nomination, is it a smoke screen of sorts to bring up issues that you mentioned, talking about the attack in libya, and other issues before? have we not gone through these sort of hearings, or is this legitimate, legitimate concerns republicans need answers before a vote can happen? >> well, this is the way the process works. i was talking a couple of days ago to senator lindsey graha
